New database added to HCGS website – “World War II Soldiers from Hopkins County”

We encourage you to visit our society’s web site at  We have just added the database “World War II Soldiers from Hopkins County”.  This is the compilation of many years (approximately 7 years!) of research done by Linda Payne  regarding our veterans. 
This database can be found on the menu bar of our website under Online Records. It is still an ongoing project and we are asking people to submit any corrections or additions to the information to the library.  You may email your comments to [email protected]

We will soon be adding other databases related to the Korean War, Vietnam War, and other Conflicts that Linda has researched. These databases were created by Earl Pogue and Mark Critchett – who has also been working on this project for several years. Mark will update the database with these corrections as they come in and are checked.
